    No, just a smart one.

    I want to see the guy who takes his buds down to the laundry room and says, "Now, a reeeeegular power cable might be ok for you guys, but....

    I just installed a new dryer (thanks Woot). The new one came with no cable so I used the old one that came with the old dryer that was in my house when I bought 11 years ago. I am 3 blocks to the ocean, and suspect this might be a "corrosive environment". So far my dryer still works. These guys have incredible nerve. :lol:

    I have a Monster power conditioner in my HT, only because I got it on sale, below dealer cost.

    BTW, real rattlesnake oil (hard to come by) is a most excellent source of lubrication for your dryer rollers as it withstands the heat very well. Or maybe I just made that up? :D

    Happy Holidays!

    Yes so it will match the blue ball used in the washer instead of detergent.

    Reduced vibration and a lower noise floor are the benefits I've noticed ... from outside the dryer.

    You will take away my Monster Cable jumper cables over my dead body. They are by far and away the best jumper cables I've ever used.

    :D

    Did I say I got them for free?


    They are also wide bandwidth and low in distortion. :sure:

    So, what does it sound like when you are inside the dryer? :grin:

    Absolutely. It's the engine's low noise that I most appreciate after a jump. :grin:

    Actually, they are long, extremely flexible and have strong gold plated (of course) clips on them. They came in one of Monster's funky plastic cases so they even look good when stored.

    But you are right, it's their phase coherency that sets them apart. They sound schweet.

    The...
    I have the Monster e-x-t-r-a l-o-n-g 100 meter jumper cables good for jumping
    off that cute little neighbor who lives in the next block. They have jumbo platinum
    clamps and AC converters in the handles that allow long-distance jumps without
    suffering the usual voltage drops of lesser cables. $1,299.99 at Monster.com

    Thank god Monster cable is here to save me. What is that crap the Home Depot has been selling me ?

    Just a few questions for the dryerphiles

    1) So will these finally eliminate skin effect ?
    2) Not seeing the elevators to get the cable off of the floor to minimize static energy fields. Can I just spike my dryer instead ?
    3) What is the suggested break-in period to ensure proper atomic alignment to reduce diode rectification ?
    4) Any chance of getting solid silver ?

    Also - you gotta check out the hot lavendar range plug. Must be the Prince Signature Edition.

    I once sold Prince a bunch of purple, well, lavender, mic cables ages ago. They weren't Monster though since Monster didn't exist at the time. I wouldn't have done that to him anyway. :lol:
